New Building for Original Ashland Location

new ashland


THE HUMAN BEAN IS INVESTING IN NEW STANDS TO BETTER SERVE CUSTOMERS


The Human Bean team is hard at work renovating drive-thru locations in Jackson County to improve operations, visual curb appeal and better serve coffee lovers in the Rogue Valley!

The first location to receive a complete remodel is the original Human Bean that started it all back in 1998 in Ashland, Oregon. The Human Bean of Ashland paved the way for The Human Bean brand and established the products, operations and customer service we all know and love today.

The new Ashland location features a stone covered foundation, warm coffee & mocha colors and light fixtures decorated with The Human Bean’s steaming coffee cup icon. Next time you’re in the Ashland area, make sure to check-out the beautiful new building off Highway 99!

Let us know what you think of the changes on our Jackson County Facebook page. We’d love your feedback! Also, stay-tuned for the next complete remodel- The Human Bean off Biddle Rd. by Dairy Queen in Medford is next!

Opening Soon in Missouri!

With a passion¬†for creating happy people and our love of coffee, we opened our first drive-thru espresso stand in Ashland Oregon in 1998. The demand for The Human Bean’s convenient, consistent and customer focused¬†brand¬†grew and soon after opening in¬†Ashland, we expanded to surrounding cities in Oregon and steadily grew to¬†nearby¬†states.

This season, we are excited to announce that we are bringing The Human Bean to state number 9 with the opening of our 58th location in St. Joseph, Missouri!

Missouri

Located along the Missouri River and about 60 miles north of Kansas City, St. Joseph is rich with history and home to almost 80,000 residents. Among those residing in St. Joseph is HB franchisee, Erin Albright-Milek.

Albright-Milek discovered The Human Bean while vacationing in Albany, OR. She fell in love with the¬†brand and was impressed by the qualified¬†baristas that took her order. Once she tasted¬†her Snowy Mocha and The Human Bean’s signature chocolate covered espresso bean on top, she was hooked!

After visiting additional¬†locations and learning more about the¬†brand, Albright-Milek discovered¬†The Human Bean Franchise offered something special.¬†The fun atmosphere and positive spirit demonstrated by the baristas was contagious and “we¬†want to¬†offer the¬†same great experience in our area,”¬†said¬†Albright-Milek.

In addition, The Human Bean’s focus on community involvement excited and inspired¬†Albright-Milek. Since 2002, The Human Bean’s largest annual fundraiser, Coffee for A Cure, has raised over $850,000 for local breast health centers. Along with her interest in participating in Coffee for A Cure, “we’d like to show support for other organizations in our immediate area as well,” said¬†Albright-Milek.

Albright-Milek and her team are working hard to open their first stand on 4414 Commons Drive in St. Joseph by early March. Once they become great at what they do and establish The Human Bean within the St. Joseph community, they plan to eventually expand the brand to the Kansas City area.

The Human Bean expects to continue this growth through approved franchisees that share the same determination and commitment to our goals for this exceptional brand. If you are interested in learning more about The Human Bean franchise opportunities in areas that remain available for development, please refer to the Franchise page.

Cheers to Years of Coffee & Community

There’s so much to be excited about¬†this summer at The Human Bean! Many of our Human Bean locations are celebrating¬†business anniversaries by¬†giving back to the most important aspect of their business, the customers they serve of course!

grants pass

All¬†three Grants Pass, Oregon locations celebrated their second year¬†of ownership on July 1st. Promoting their anniversary as Customer Appreciation Day, The Human Bean of Grants Pass was beyond¬†excited¬†to recognize their loyal¬†customers and the feeling was mutual. Grants Pass customers¬†were happy to celebrate this day with their favorite baristas around. A regular customer from¬†Grants Pass ¬†commented on Facebook, “Thanks for the great service and for¬†always remembering my drink order even before I get there!” Congratulations on the anniversary Grants Pass!

Also to celebrate noteworthy¬†anniversaries this summer is The Human Bean of Lake Havasu City, Arizona and The Human Bean of Seaside, Oregon. The northern Lake Havasu City location is thankful¬†for 10 great years and can’t wait to celebrate such a milestone with their recently opened 2nd¬†location on the south-side of town.

The Human Bean of Seaside celebrates 8 wonderful years mid August this year. Seaside franchisees couldn’t be prouder of the community involvement they’ve established in Seaside and are bringing their same lively spirit to their Warrenton location which¬†opened last October.¬†‚ÄúWe try to separate ourselves by really standing out as a supporter of the community,” said Seaside franchisee. Another successful year in business proves their efforts are appreciated, congratulations Seaside!

Giving Back in Treasure Valley

For the third year in a row, Treasure Valley Human Bean locations raised funds and awareness for a local and worthy children’s cause¬†called the¬†Jayden DeLuca Foundation!

donation totalThe Cause
The Jayden DeLuca Foundation was established in 2008 in honor of Jayden Riley DeLuca, a 2 1/2 year old little girl who passed away due to a cardiac condition. Her parents, Jeremy and Karalie Deluca, believe that Jayden made such a positive impact on the world and it is only fitting that The Jayden DeLuca Foundation do the same in her honor.

JDL dy  JDLDonation Day
On Friday, June 26th, all 5 Human Bean locations in the Treasure Valley region donated 30% of their daily SALES, not just proceeds, to the Jayden DeLuca Foundation. The donations raised by this event will provide support and technological progress in the development of pediatric heart conditions. Thank you to all who supported Jayden DeLuca Foundation by generously donating or purchasing a tasty beverage on June 26th. With your support, The Human Bean of Treasure Valley raised $3,100 for the Jayden DeLuca Foundation.

Mochas for Men

MFM sm poster2 (1)At the Human Bean, we are passionate about creating happy Human Beans. Each drink on our menu is crafted from the best ingredients and served by talented and friendly baristas. To top it off, the Human Bean believes in doing good both globally and locally. Our passion for giving back to the communities we serve inspired us to create the 1st annual Mochas for Men. 

On Friday, Nov. 21st, EVERY mocha enjoyed helped¬†support local men’s health. For every mocha purchased, the Human Bean pledged to donate $1 toward providing screening and follow up care to men in the communities we serve. Together, our wonderful customers enjoyed over 5300 mochas and we raised over $5300 to support men’s health!

In anticipation for the big day,¬†we featured 2 delicious mochas all November called “the Gent” and “the Lumberjack”.¬†The Gent mocha was¬†inspired by delicious¬†chocolate turtles and it’s recipe called for sweet praline & caramel flavors.¬†The Lumberjack resembled a peanut butter cup and combined¬†creamy peanut butter and rich chocolate. Our customers loved both the Gent and the Lumberjack and we received countless raves about how good¬†they tasted. Don’t worry, these¬†mochas are still available to order if you missed them last month!

baristas

The day of Mochas for Men was incredibly rewarding and fun. Our customers showed their overwhelming support by treating themselves and their loved ones to yummy mochas all day. Also, many of our baristas  dressed up and decorated cups to make the event fun and help spread the word.

Thank you to everyone involved in making our 1st annual Mochas for Men a success. Your support makes it possible for us to give back and make a difference in the communities we serve. Just another reason the Human Bean is more than just great coffee.
